3 out of 5 stars Dog Day Afternoon

Part of a 10 route day with Zach. Great weather, no other climbers present all day at any location we climbed. Nice north facing arete (but not great or classic by any means). We did not take any gear up it. The run out part is much easier than the start I thought.

5 out of 5 stars Freaking Awesome

One of the coolest face and arete climbs in JTree. BRING GEAR. The guidebook doesnt doesn't mention it, but it is mandatory, unless you like R/X routes.

4 out of 5 stars Great climbing & very safe

Powerful from the start! Lotsa rest when you need it. Was amazed by how well it was bolted (am I really in J-tree?)... except for before the last bolt. But, as pointed out before, bring something to stick in the horizontal if you're not comfy at the grade... I had a forgotten #1C3 on the back of my harness, and I was happy I did.
